for a group of 20+, service of canapés, aperitif and then 3-course meal went without a hitch. Most important, the acoustics of the room enabled conversation across the tables without problems, which is often not the case in larger restaurants.

This restaurant was booked for a very special occasion by a French friend. The occasion was a reunion meal for 14 English and French friends, some of whom had not met since the 1960s.The English group including myself, combined the reunion with a tour of the nearby WW1 battlefields.

A set menu was arranged beforehand to make things easier on the night and also because the oldest member of the English group (aged 75) is very conservative with his food and reluctant to try French dishes.So the manager was very accommodating and provided a set menu, including drinks, at a very reasonable price of 41 francs each.

Starters; Coquille St Jacques/Foie Gras
Main; Steak or Fish
Dessert; Patisserie and Glaces.

The ambiance was welcoming and warm with staff going out of their way to be helpful.The setting of the table, too, was very attractive and the view of the racecourse outside very unusual. It really was a very special night with lots of nostalgia ( including the discreet singing of a couple of Beatle songs) and the venue contributed to the success of the evening.

I would certainly return to this restaurant and sample their more extensive menu.The setting is relaxing, the food very good and the staff very friendly.
